It’s Okay to Grow Slow + PowerSheets Update

Hello, friends! As many of you have heard, we are officially sold out of all 2017 PowerSheets. We've gotten a lot of questions about why we didn't order more, so we wanted to pull back the curtain a bit and share some of the backstory from Lara...

Here's the thing, friends. Several months ago, I had a few sleepless and prayerful nights before deciding on how many PowerSheets to order for 2017. After analyzing and discussing and praying some more, we tripled our quantities from 2016. We wanted to do more (and order a lot of new products) but we didn't. We chose to grow slow and smart. We ordered the exact amount we knew we could handle well, and held off on ordering all those new products till just recently - they will launch in the spring.

You see, these kinds of decisions are big. They have the potential to impact my family if I make choices that aren't wise or that are too risky. Praise Him, all of our inventory landed in hands across the world. We are so grateful. THANK YOU so much for your support of our shop! And words can't express how thankful I am that I listened to the Lord and didn't grow beyond our capacity too fast. We are a small team of eight, and four of us run the Cultivate What Matters side of things. We want to stay small. Because small doesn't mean that we aren't making an impact.

Small means we get to talk on the phone with many of you, one-to-one. Small means we get to know your stories. Small means we get quality over quantity. Will we be ordering more for 2018? Yes. We likely will. And at a pace that we can support well. I want to be here for the long-haul, and the long-haul means doing what you can with what you have--one wise step at a time. It's okay to grow slow, friends.

If you missed getting a set of PowerSheets, you haven't missed out on having an intentional year! Lara's free 2017 goal setting series is live on her blog right now (start here), and we're grateful that so many friends are finding it helpful! The new Make It Happen book + journal bundle in our shop is also a great option to follow along. If you're looking to kick your goal setting up a notch, we invite you to join us in person at the Making Things Happen Intensive this March! Cheering you on!

      That's a great question, Tiffany! We don't offer a PDF version for a few reasons, but mostly because we've found that holding a workbook in hands is powerful! Be sure to follow Lara's Goal-Setting Series to dig in until June! Xo! Jess

    So thankful I found these power sheets. They are helping me truly find my purpose and passion. I am thankful you are printing more and that I could order a set for the last 6 months of the year! Keep up the good work!

    […] Wise words from a wise woman. If you not already reading Lara Casey’s blog, get over there now. […]

    You all are so awesome! I am so thankful that I stumbled across your site one day. I have only been using the PowerSheets for a little over a month now but they have been such a HUGE blessing in my life! God is already moving and changing so many things in great ways for me for this year and we are only 12 days in! I love the fact that you are a small company and I wish in so many ways that I could find a company like yours to work for her in Ohio lol. Keep doing what you are doing because God has wonderful things in store for you ladies!
